Runner Beans


(Phaseolus coccineus) Another New World native. Grown like ordinary beans with one major difference: they prefer cooler temperatures. Sow in spring about two weeks before last frost; young seedlings tolerate a light frost. Plant the large seeds 1-3 inches deep, 4-6 inches apart at base of trellis or other support. Use the robust pods as snaps, or allow the seed to mature further for shell or dried use. Hot summer weather usually shuts production down, but the plants may start bearing again when the weather cools.
